(Pro 30:5 KJV) Every word of God is pure: he is a shield unto them that put their trust in him.
What is the purpose of testing or as the KJV says being “pure” (6884)? Too often we tend to think in terms of finals. Our grade depends on the score we get. In education and training that has a place, but there is another concept in testing that educators talk about a lot but rarely do to any real purpose. One of the concepts behind testing is to find out how much you know so that the missed concepts and facts can be retaught. It is a wonderful concept that does not work in education because of time restrictions and other problems that are more political so I won’t go into them here.
We should have time to apply this in our lives but the testing is kind of in reverse. It is more a pattern of applying the principles and standards, seeing how we are doing and moving on. The Christian life is a walk not a crisis. It is growth, not stasis.
So? When you find a truth that you have been ignoring or have not been aware of, apply it. Make it a part of your pattern of behavior or your world view. Make it a matter of thought and prayer.
